She never bad upon her hand a kid" glove, and she never wore a silk drees, though she earned by hard labor many thousands of dollars. But no woman has been borne .to the tomb within the limits of New Orleans who was more generally respected respected and loved. To say that she was honored by the funeral obsequies would be to belittle her services, and her worth.
